Perfect fit
This is a very nice quality jacket even if it didn't have the heat option. The fit is actually closer to American sizing which helps a lot to know since it seems a lot of stores don't actually stock one to try on in store. I found it nice and warm, even to having to turn it down to low heat. The heat zones are a bit small but with it zipped up the heat spreads around pretty good. I recommend a thick shirt underneath so the heat zones have a chance to spread out inside. The pocket for the battery fits a 2.0 battery perfectly but will fit a 5.0... I didn't see it being necessary to go bigger because the 2.0 lasted longer than I actually needed. I didn't run a usb charging cord yet to charge my phone, but it has a nice internal zone to run one and keep it from tangling up with anything else, so very nice.

Serial Number - Be Wary
Lifetime service is great if you jump through the hoops. I purchased my Ridgid drill 11-9-03. Back then you didn't have to register it as long as you had the receipt. Over the years, have had it worked on twice and the batteries replaced 3 times. Just took it in for batteries and was told they would no longer honor the warranty because part of the serial number had worn off the drill. That was my fault for not writing it down anywhere before. Everyone please learn from this. Write your serial number down in a separate place. Also, they told me that when I receive the new batteries back for my other tools, I need to contact Ridgid and get them to update the new serial numbers on the new batteries or the Lifetime contract on the batteries wouldn't be any good. All of my tools are Ridgid and am pleased so far with the lifetime service. Have got my money's worth so am happy.

Battery warranty
The batteries are lifetime warranty, some reviews say that they don't but the warranty that I received Does say lifetime warranty on the batteries. I went to the HD in my area and the sales rep from Ridged was there and he also mentioned that the batteries do come with lifetime warranties.

So much for lifetime warranty on Rigid batteries
I have a 18 Lithium ion and purchase since it had free lifetime ( until Rigid changed their policy) Batteries do not last.Bad move on their part if you are going to offer lifetime, that means lifetime.Brand loyal no more, Bosch is looking better every day.

Home Depot Now Offers Battery Exchange!!!
YOU ARE NOW ABLE TO TAKE YOUR BATTERIES TO HOME DEPOT FOR AN EXCHANGE UNDER THE LSA. IF THEY DON'T HAVE YOUR REPLACEMENT IN STOCK, RIDGID WILL DROP SHIP A NEW ONE TO YOUR HOUSE! So I bought a drill with two batteries, one skinny & one fat (1,400mAh & 3,000 mAh, respectively). They both went bad after about two years of intermediate use, but that's no surprise. I took them to the service center and waited 6 weeks for the new ones. I received a follow up call from Ridgid to ask if i was happy with the service center; I said sure, except I waited 6 weeks for them. The representative responded, we shipped your replacement batteries to the repair center 5 days after you dropped them off. In short, it took me calling the service center 5x before they found it. When I was 'discussing' the situation, the representative said Ridgid and HD now allow you to do the exchange IN THE STORE. just take it to the tool service / rentals desk and they will take care of you...no more waiting months to get your batteries back, making the LSA actually worth while!!!!
